What is Aramid?
Aramid fibres are a class of heat-resistant and strong synthetic fibres (high density nylon) characterised by excellent resistance to heat – it neither melts nor ignites in normal levels of oxygen. It is used extensively in the production of protective apparel, air filtration, thermal and electrical insulation and is utilised as a substitute for asbestos. It was first developed for use by the US military.
